Neustar International Security Council (NISC) research revealed yesterday that system compromises are now the greatest cyber concern for IT security leaders, with nearly one in four (23%) security leaders citing them as the biggest threat to their business. Jason Garbis, VP at Cyxtera Technologies commented below.

Jason Garbis, VP at Cyxtera Technologies:

“The traditional network perimeter as we knew it no longer exists, so relying solely on it is a doomed security strategy. IT is more distributed and diverse than ever. Organizations must change their entire security infrastructure and mindset to protect against evolving and aggressive cyber threats. This requires a shift from a hardware-centric security model to a software-defined one. People should be at the center of security, with an identity-centric model that starts with a user, not an IP address. Verify who the user is, not just what wire they came in on, before granting access to applications and systems. Software-defined perimeter (SDP) software solutions provide a giant leap forward in that direction because users only get access to network resources they need, after they’ve been authenticated. Unauthorized resources aren’t just blocked at the network port – they’re completely invisible. This vastly reduces the attack surface area.”
